The Bounty

Harvest time is upon us, the furnaces have been churning out pumpkins and the glass workers are delivering them to market. It’s no surprise being an artist is similar to that of a farmer. One spends all season growing their stock and then must transport their goods to the market and hope it brings a good price. One such market is an seasonal event hosted by the Schack Arts Center called  Schacktober Fest. The “Pumpkin Patch” runs from September 17 to November 7 at the Schack Center in Everett Washington. I have always enjoyed the Schack Center their programing and staff have always supported the arts community in a very positive and approachable way. One of the most popular events during Schacktober fest is their glass pumpkin patch. You can Pick (and purchase) your favorite glass pumpkin from more than 900 colorful glass pumpkins handcrafted in the Schack glassblowing studio. You’ll also find harvest-themed paintings, pottery & gifts throughout the gallery patch. Best of all its free. Additionally if you are unable to get up to Everett my Pumpkin Heads are available on the Fulcrum Gallery online store.
